Hidden Past Surrounds Us – Nearby History II

We trace the evolution of buildings, landscapes and towns in Maine, and consider the socio-economic factors that shaped them. We learn to follow documentary and physical clues to “extract” their history. Each participant seeks evidence that reveals the past of a house, farm, dock, mill, store, or neighborhood of his or her choice. This Colloquy does not repeat topics covered in Nearby History I; it is open to all.

Jan Eakins is a cultural historian and writer who has researched and lectured on Maine history for more than twenty years. She is presently writing A Chance World, Lost History of the Rush for California Gold, which draws on letters and diaries of more than 300 Mainers, some from the Blue Hill Peninsula.
